The opossums, also known by their scientific name Didelphimorphia
, make up the largest order of marsupials in the Western Hemisphere. They are also commonly called possums, particularly in the southern United States, although that term technically refers to Australian animals of the suborder Phalangeriformes. Opossums have a remarkably robust immune system, and show partial or total immunity to the venom of rattlesnakes, cottonmouths, and other pit vipers. Opossums are about eight times less likely to carry rabies than wild dogs, and about one in eight hundred opossums is infected with this virus.
Although all living opossums are essentially opportunistic omnivores, different species vary in the amount of meat and vegetation they include in their diet.
